EffNet: An Efficient Structure for Convolutional Neural Networks

01/19/2018 ∙ by Ido Freeman, et al. ∙ 0

With the ever increasing application of Convolutional Neural Networks to costumer products the need emerges for models which can efficiently run on embedded, mobile hardware. Slimmer models have therefore become a hot research topic with multiple different approaches which vary from binary networks to revised convolution layers. We offer our contribution to the latter and propose a novel convolution block which significantly reduces the computational burden while surpassing the current state-of-the-art. Our model, dubbed EffNet, is optimised for models which are slim to begin with and is created to tackle issues in existing models such as MobileNet and ShuffleNet.
